Hermiston Education Foundation
Helping Kids Reach Their Potential
The Hermiston Education Foundation is committed to excellence and preparing our students for the 21st century.
The Hermiston Education Foundation has a vision.
As we look to the future, we need to offer students the chance to discover explore, and grasp opportunities beyond the bounds of the mandated curriculum. The Foundation’s mission is to empower students to explore all academic areas as well as the arts. The Foundation will grant funding that will provide students with the tools and knowledge to build new ideas and excitement for learning.
To achieve excellence, the Hermiston Education Foundation needs your help.
Every charitable gift is important. Whether you donate money, a bequest of your estate or other gifting opportunities, remember … where education and philanthropy meet, stronger citizens and communities result. We are “Helping Kids Reach Their Potential.”
What form will grants take?
The Hermiston Education Foundation will support one level of classroom grants: Basic Grants.
The Basic Grant level will be less than $1,000. Two determining factors in awarding grants will be the project’s ability to provide significant enhancement to children’s education and to what extent the project supports improvement goals.
